Candy Store Looks Like Child’s Illustration Come To Life
Australian shop employs graphical line artwork to create a sweet destination that is playful, imaginative, and charming.
The Candy Room in Melbourne, Australia blends the worlds of imagination and illustration to create a fantastical store that appears to leap from the page of a child’s drawing.
The cash register sits atop a kitchen island–peak behind it and you’ll see a stove with a pot simmering on top. Looking around the room, cupboards and bookshelves hold jars and bins filled with brightly colored candy, and there’s a dog bed and basket of laundry beneath the window sill.
Stools drawn up to the counter, pictures of smiling faces hanging on the walls, and a door for a mouse’s house add character and dimension to the space because, after all, the only real three-dimensional objects in the store is the candy itself- everything from the stove and bookshelves to the dog bed are not real, but artwork.
